This was a long tour, y’all, and its pace finally got the best of me these past two days. So, with that in mind, below is a very brief recap of the last 36 hours of engagements carried out by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After yesterday’s Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy unveiling, the two visited the local charity, Pillars, with the Prime Minister. Meghan wore a cream-colored Brandon Maxwell dress with a Burberry trench and Stuart Weitzman heels.
I liked this fine, though it was a bit of a repeat from her debut look landing in Sydney two weeks ago.
In the evening, the couple again joined the Prime Minister, this time at a reception at the Aukland War Memorial Museum. Meghan wore a navy mullet skirt dress – we’ve actually seen this before, albeit blurry and long-distance. It made its debut at a polo game in the pre-engagement days. A win in my book.
Today it was off to Te Papaiouru Marae in Rotorua. Meghan wore a navy Stella McCartney dress and Manolo Blahnik heels. I mean, we’ve seen this before (not literally, but it says something with the evening before’s repeat is more exciting) so let’s keep this moving.
A better look here:
It actually took several checks for me to realize Meghan had in fact changed outfits before engagements (to Rainbow Springs), but in fact the next head-to-toe navy look was a sweater (Givenchy) and a pleated skirt (also Givenchy). I really liked this skirt, so I’ll call it a win, but again, let’s break up the color, shall we? At least for my sake.
The final note was a casual one – and a walk across the Redwoods Treewalk. The images are actually pretty spectacular.
Meghan wore Mother jeans and the same navy Givenchy sweater from earlier in the days. Heels were swapped for black Birdies flats.
And that’s a wrap for today! Deeper thoughts on all things KP to come…in a few days. Until then, let’s take a breather and I may recycle some history until I have a moment to write new(!)
